Source Code Repositories Added for All Apps

I’ve made the Mercurial source code repositories for my old SCUMM tools public, they’ve been published on BitBucket. I’ve also added links to the repositories on each app’s info page. Hopefully, this will make it easier for people to fork their own versions of the code and make changes.

Win32 Binaries for SCUMM utils

My butt pushed me off itself and forced me to make some Win32 binaries for the current revisions of ScummPacker, Scummbler, ScummSpeaks, and SCUMM Image Encoder (mi2img). They’re available on the main page, or after the break.

Scummbler v2 r6 (EDIT: r7)

I MAY have uploaded the latest version of Scummbler without actually testing that it worked, and I MAY not have finished writing the code before I uploaded it. Then again, the moon landing MAY have been faked; we just can’t be sure about these things, can we? Anyway, new version of Scummbler that actually works […]
